The Essence of Moments
Elements (fragments) that compose the daily life, which are located either in the most familiar places or outside of them, as a part of the complexity of the human activities, are the raw materials with whose the photographer becomes a creator of a new world, a new transformed reality. All these elements free from their actual substance become a sum of hints, within lie the truth of the photographer himself and the code of his view of the world.
